The Dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire as a Model

Everyone can feel the stagnation and decline around us in the US. Many think that America is bound for Brazilification but the decline would be like Western Rome where the elites were okay with barbarian invaders replacing the natives as long as they kept their estates. Brazilification is still possible, but there might be a…

Imperial Growing Pains

A curious thing happens reading revisionist and dissident outlets with regards to the American Empire. It just magically appeared in 1945 after World War Two and has been humming since. It is mighty funny to read how this global empire sprang into existence. Rome was not built in a day, the British East India Company…

A Review of Mine Were of Trouble

I quite enjoy historical wargames and as an outgrowth of that hobby I have become quite the avid collector of combat memoirs, especially of the WW2 and pre-WW2 era. When I heard that Peter Kemp’s ‘Mine Were of Trouble’ would be available for the pittance of 10usd I was elated. With the tightening quarantines imminent…

The End of Court History

A review of Truman: By David McCullough For the amount of attention the post 1945/91 World Order and the US domestic social deconstruction gets in our circles, the historical circumstances leading towards the decay of American social order do not get much more thorough than books like McCullough’s Truman, Caro’s Johnson or Davis’ FDR. The…

A Defector Gene

As we watch the globalism crisis unfold, it is interesting to watch different reactions from different populations. There does seem to be a bit of the Hajnal Line working within the EU as Eastern Europe & Italy are moving to secure sovereignty while Western Europe has a less strident posture but makes statements about securing…

On Eunuchs, Trans, and Galli

By twitfit I disagree with the pun that Transexuals are the Tranissaries of woke capital. The Janissaries were an elite core of slaves (the precise relationship is really important in the study of the Ottomans, Islam, and Near Eastern society, but can largely be smoothed over here) from diverse, largely Christian backgrounds. Taken from their…

MLK: A Unique Product Of His Time

Submitted by Wanderer Today Americans will be flooded with media blurbs well designed to celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. MLK was a useful tool of the Eastern establishment against the South in a classic high-low vs. middle fight. Perfectly suited for the new era of widespread television ownership, MLK was a…

Impeachment: Another Bite At The Apple

The Democrats have not handed over the articles of impeachment to the Senate. They want to try to finagle the terms of the trial. This is a joke. They want to try to rig it as much as possible not in hopes of a conviction but in hopes that all Biden related or Ukraine 2016…

Calhoun, Biopower, and America’s Phony Constitution

It seems to me that the most important characteristic of “liberalism” is its attack on quiddity, that is, its attack on the notion of what-ness, of the singular essence of a thing itself. All other characteristics of liberalism are secondary. This came to mind when reading John C. Calhoun’s great Disquisition on Government. Along with…

Whitewashing Aztec Sacrifice

Americans have just exited the multi-month season where the media and diligent foot soldiers of the left harass them about celebrating their heritage of discovering the continent and founding the nation. This is a season in the progressive calendar. This leads into the war on Christmas during December, which then flows into the MLK glorification…
